The ex-Mrs. Bezos said that she is, “Grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff with support from each other and everyone who reached out to us in kindness, and looking forward to next phase as co-parents and friends.”
MacKenzie said she’s “happy” to be giving her ex-husband all her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin … but will be keeping 25% of the Amazon stock the couple shared.
She doesn’t give an exact amount, but for MacKenzie to give up her other financial interests, she must be walking away with a pretty decent amount of cash.

Bezos broke the news about the couple’s divorce in January after 25-years of marriage. They had been separated for a while, but made things official just before stories surfaced of the billionaire’s relationship with ex-news anchor, Lauren Sanchez.
Sanchez also split with her husband, Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, and the two are continuing to work through their divorce … with a lot less billions on the line.
